Mayapple Weather - We No Longer Believe In Miracles, We Rely On Them EP [SiS-04]
In September, Summer turns slowly into fall.
In December, fall turns slowly into winter.
But in between them, in mid-October, Fall becomes Autumn
The rain doesnt bring green life to grass or flowers.
But covers them with mud.
Wind means new heavy grey clouds.
Cold temperatures start slowly to appear.
No ice but everything is getting darker.
With the cycle of life and before being nude and bare, trees are wearing festive colours.
Walking in forest when the weather gives us some respite is then an eternal pleasure for the eyes.
We see them on the trees, we see them swallowed by the sky and they crinkle under our feet for their last stay.
They are everywhere giving in return their life to the soil with the promise of future green sundays in spring.
Mayapple Weather is the project of Mark Boudreau.
He lives on Cape Breton Island (Canada).

Cheerful, folksy tunes; some more upbeat stuff, too. Part charming easy listening, part country/gruff, part get-up-and-dance-some (yeah!). Some interesting visuals come to mind throughout. Hmm, a lot of contrasts here, between the songs, but a central theme of folk running through it all.
